three emergency declarations for connecticut, and rhode island, clearing the way for fema. let's get right to bill karins and the weather channel forecast. what's it looking like right now. >> sandy is an amazing anomaly. this storm this time of year should not be this strong this far north. at this point in the math it should not be ready to take a hook back into the northern mid atlantic states and southern new england. that's all going to happen today. we'll deal with, in some cases, devastating storm surge and the wind damage is going to be incredible with still leaves on the trees in many areas from philadelphia to the d.c. areas. there's the center of the storm. still thunderstorms around the center. it's feasting right now over the warm waters of the gulf stream. it may even intensify a little bit. amazingly the winds went up this morning to 85 miles per hour, now only a little less than 400 miles away from new york city. it will accelerate and move quickly towards the coast. the weather will go downhill in a hurry. look for landfall somewhere near atlantic city to wild booed

with the city. fema is well represented and we have several defense coordinating officers here over the past couple of days. certainly the california national guard is represented heavily here. obviously they are going to be the first guys to respond to a disaster and they have several interesting roles not only from a state perspective but as they get federalized or with the dual status commander managing federal response and federal authorities of military authorities flowing in. and most significantly, we're represented today with the commander of northern command, general jackoby. as you know, defense report to civil authorities is not a primary mission area for the department of defense. we have codified it in policy over the years and certainly things have advanced since 9/11 and hurricane katrina, but there has been a real gap in detailed preplanning for emergency response, particularly as it works its way down the chain into the tactical forces that would respond, most specifically i think those on active duty. this is an area that we don't tend to pay a lot of attention to and ver
. >> on wednesday romney issue ad statement in which he said fema played a key role during times of disaster. as president i will ensure fema has the funding it need to fulfill its mission while directing maximum resources to the first responders who work tirelessly to help those in need because states and localities are in the best position to get aid to the individuals and communities affected by natural disaster. >> the rhetoric between the two candidates have been toned down that wasn't the case for their running mates. vice president biden accused the romney campaign of lying. it implies the auto bailout is sending u.s. jobs overseas. at a campaign stop paul ryan said the ad was inaccurate. up next on a thursday morning a closer look at some of the damage sandy left behind along the jersey shore. this is the "cbs morning news." do you want to go into space, george? you will have to be very brave. hi, grandma! oh hi,. my little monkey! here. thank you very much. you're welcome. everyone got on and they were off to the launching site. google, how far is earth to the moon? moon is 238,900
of the things that i did today was talk to fema about trying to get an office and staff person in various parts of the district today, and they're working on it, and with the money that comes to downs for recovery to rebuild board walks or municipal buildings, i think there is a 25% state and local match. so we ask that that be waived. many of the towns are small and can't afford that. so there's a lot of cooperation going on. >> when you're making those calls, someone is answering your call and you're getting responses -- >> i literally called the fema while i walked into the nbc building today and they called me back in ten minutes. >> i know you were personally evacuated, i know you're back without power, good luck to you, stay in touch. >> thank you. >> for reference, this is the sixth district in new jersey, do we have that map? there we go, it's marked in red there where, of course, we have seen some of the worst devastation from this crisis. last night live we had a shocking moment in a live conversation with a very hard hit town, this is what happened, this is don zimmer. >> probably ha
